USB driver will not install

I just bought this game for my 9 year old but the USB scanner device driver will not install. I run Windows XP with all the updates and service packs installed. I cannot find any links on the web to a driver. Where can I find one to get this device to work properly.

What do I do to get the game to play?


This game is 12 years old and was designed for Windows XP. I would try running it in compatibility mode to see if that helps. Considering were the crash is though it would seem like the draw calls are looking for a version of DirectX that was never designed to work with whatever OS you got. If compatibility mode does not work, you may need to go as far as to install Windows XP mode (assuming you are running Windows 7) or a second partition with Windows XP on it.

Upgrade drivers to windows 7


If the game didn't work for Windows 7, you can use a virtual computer and install in it Windows XP, and then enjoy the game.

To create virtual computer, you can use softwares like VMWare Workstation. Then you need to use a Windows XP CD or image (download it) to install it to the virtual computer. Now go enjoy the game.

It says it cant start or run do to incompatibility with 64 bit versions of windows....any way i can make my mission think game work? :/


The Learning Company Super Solver Mission T.H.I.N.K. was released in 1999 for Windows 3 and probably Windows 95/98. It could run under XP in the compatibility mode.

For a newer Windows OS, you need a workaround. You can use a a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer using the compatibility mode and it should work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If your computer has a USB keyboard and mouse, you will need to use Win98 or newer OS. (However, the drivers may be an issue with Win98.)

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check the box for Run as compatible with an older version of Windows. Then launch the program.

I hope this helps.

I have bought e games MahJongg Master 6. Have run the disc to install but the game wont run, tells me Cannot initialise graphics and cannot install graphics device. My system is HP pentium 2.7GHz, 2GB...


Mahjong 6 was produced in 2004 and will likely not be compatible with your operating system, operating systems that are 64bit are often less compatible with software than operating systems that are 32bit, especially with older software. One solution you can try is to:
  1. Right click the desktop shortcut for the game
  2. Click "properties"
  3. Click the "compatibility" tab
  4. Check the box next to "run in compatibility mode for"
  5. Select Windows XP
  6. Click Apply
This may allow the game to run by emulating an older operating system.

Hi, phoogland!

Older products aren't compatible with newer OS. The best way you can play these games is probably by emulating a virtual PC. Try installing Windows 98 on a Windows Virtual PC.

Here's a link to a detailed manual: http://www.essjae.com/virtualization/WinVPC-InstallingWin98.pdf

If this didn't fix your issue please let me know. Hope this helped you!

Windows7 will not accept my Millennium Game Pack


It may or may not work, but try installing as Administrator and setting the program's EXE into "Compatability Mode for XP SP2", and also, running as Administrator.
Windows 7 just doesn't want to support any software/hardware over like a year old... Drivers are a HUGE issue. Especially for older stuff. Compatability Mode is one way round it but not always.

Also you will have to set to OFF digital Driver signing at bootup press F8, and at the bottom you will see driver signing.... EVERY TIME you boot you MUST set this OFF, or it will simply not work, thats if it does install anyway. You MUST have it OFF to install as well.

When I run the game I don't see all effects and character models.


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

Pc game not compatible with my DirectX


This game is for Windows 95/98/ME. And you dont specify what is your problem. The game doesn't install? Or after installation, it doesn't run? What exactly happens?

Anyway, if you're having problems running the game, you can try to:

If you're on XP or Vista:
- Install latest Direct-X (9 or 10, according to your OS, on Win98 and ahead you can install up to Direct-X 9): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

- If on XP/Vista, right-click on the game EXE and set compatibility mode (select properties, then compatibility, and on "compatibility mode" select to run the program as Windows 98 (try all options to see if it runs on any) - and try also the checkboxes below, to run the game in 256 color mode, on 640x480 resolution and to disable "visual themes".

Also update your graphics driver to the latest version available.
